Cocktail Recipes from Peligroso

What sets Peligroso apart from all the others on the market is our three separate types of glass to further distinguish the unique character of each type of tequila. The Silver uses a crystal clear flint glass to reflect the purity of the juice, mix that up for a refreshing tequila sunrise. The Reposado uses a rustic finished glass to give more of an antiqued look to match the golden aged nature of the juice, perfect for a salted margarita. Lastly, the Añejo is bottled in a sleek and mysterious satin black glass bottle that alludes to the complex layers and undertones of the long aged tequila, think boys poker night.

Below are some awesome drink recipes that will definitely spice up your Cinco de Mayo celebrations and satisfy all levels of tequila connoisseurs!!
